I grew up in the 1960's and can remember the cold war very well. It was a scary time, where the threat of global thermonuclear Holocaust hung over our heads. This was a frightening time to grow up. I remember pictures like the one above. At the Nevada Test Sight the government built houses and even small communities. They would put mannequins in the houses, posed as everyday families. They would then set off a nuclear bomb, and then go in and study the damage to the house and family. I find the picture very creepy.
